Exeter Township is located in the extreme northeastern corner of Luzerne County on the right bank of the Susquehanna River and is one of the oldest settlements in Wyoming Valley. Within Exeter Township are areas known by their local names, Harding, Mt. Zion, Hex Acres and The Campground. It has the distinction of having had the earliest business enterprise – a gristmill and sawmill. The Township is not very industrial, however it possesses some necessary small businesses such as a gas station, auto repair shops, and pizzeria.
The welfare of the children is very important to our community. The elementary school is constantly being upgraded; there are Boy Scout and Girl Scout Organizations. Special events for the children are held on holidays such as a Christmas Party and an Easter Egg Hunt.
We have many dedicated volunteer workers who keep the Harding/Mt. Zion Fire and Ambulance Association intact. We also have a small police force made up of dedicated individuals who strive to make the Township a safe place.
The Township owns and maintains a Baseball/Soccer field and pavilion in back of the Municipal Building; Tennis Courts and Playground are located at the end of Coolidge Avenue. The rural location, areas for fishing and hunting, along with its scenic beauty make Exeter Township an enjoyable, pleasant place to live.
